    We have advanced!

    Next Advance:
    -Thursday noon EST or
    -When 11/11 are ready

    Last Week Notes:
    -Heisman proves more challenging but still success (especially in the run game)
    -Mullen and Heath are recruiting juggernauts... everyone? not so much.
    -Bonner has played 12 games in 3 game weeks... its hard to get a win :)
    -Mullen's power rankings are witty. Dare I say he is one of the wittier dwarfs in Illi-noice?

    This Week:
    -Big Games: Bulldog @ Baylor, Heath @ TexasAM, Goose @ Tennessee, Mullen @ Bama
    -Bye Week: Brettymonty
    -User Games: Luke vs Pro
    -Update your Team Page, check out Pro's Take, and head over to brows the new Power Rankings!

    Other Notes:

    A handful of you guys stats are possibly steering into unbalanced with regards to slot receivers and tight ends over starting wideouts. please remember our commitment to not exploiting or overusing slots and tight ends as well as making sure our #1 and #2 guys are our primary receivers :)

    on the sim note, just another exhortation: we are on heisman. when you get down big and are frustrated... this is still not the time to start going seam go route every play. don't be lame.

    You keep saying this but how can or why would a person pull off the seam route every time doesn't the CPU pick up on it?

    no, the cpu definitely does not pickup on it.

    a guarantee: i could throw 5TDs for 300yds to my slot receiver every single game. every game.

    summary: the cpu A.I. is actually less intelligent than Bonner.

    With that being said now I see the problem...I'm think my hot route was the right read...

    But your saying the play stays open and I didn't know that and since I don't stay with pass every play I didn't know...I fully understand you now!

    one rule of thumb: i NEVER hot read slots to go routes... ever. i don't hot read slots at all come to think of it. i'll admittedly kind of put a quota of one or 2 passes a game to a slot and leave then won't go there again. (I try to limit hot reads and audibles at all to make sure I'm not manipulating too much)

    again, not hard and fast rules really but just within viewing the landscape of the game.

    plus, when you're playing plague, just throw up go routes to your streaking outside wideouts. he's horrible at defending them :)

    cat out the bag: i think 90% of the time I get my qb barking at the line but don't change a thing just to get my opponent worried, lol. I like to think the other guy is sweating while I'm confident in what I called :)

    The Players of the Week tab on the online dynasty site is freaking awesome. Hadn't looked at it before.
